This is best program I luckily stumbled upon that does exactly what I was looking to do. I am using it to program drum patterns and practice exercises. Works awesome for that. A great supplementary tool. Handy, quick and easy also for inputting tab to see if it sounds right or remotely close. Can suit these purposes for other instruments as well I suppose. I love just automating a practice routine as a song and it takes itself through different patterns and tempo changes which is real handy. I wish it had a couple of features, but I make do making simple scripts to auto edit the XML files like doing mass bpm changes. Sucks when you mess those XMLs up trying to manually edit. (There is a reason I avoid data entry work) but I have the structure pretty well learned.
I am impressed, it is perhaps the best drum machine I've experienced. Happy, the beta version is available for Windows too.
Hi I'm using Hydrogen 9.7. on Win 10 - it's just great - except FX everything works very stable - with a little bit excel and other small tools it's even easy to make your own kits - import/export of drumkits need a bit of help, but then work - probably the best tool for making drums - even for live -
